The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial had its groundbreaking just months before her visit.
"We sat on chairs placed over newly-turned dirt, surrounded by chain-link fence," she said. "Sitting there listening to the speeches and hearing the names read, it was hard to imagine what this memorial would look like."
Afterwards, she saw a model of what the memorial would one day look like.
"When I was here for the dedication in October of 1991, this site was miraculously transformed into an exact duplicate of that model I had seen a year-and-a-half earlier."
